It is always exciting to get to Spring Break. A week or two off is a great way to relax and have fun before your kids finish the rest of the school year. Living in the OC, there is no shortage for things to do during Spring Break in Orange County. There are so many great family oriented day trips and even overnight trips for the ones you love. We have narrowed our favorites down to the 3 things we will be doing this spring break (besides going to the Beach):
Staycation at a Resort
The Great Wolf Lodge has come to Southern California, and it could not have been at a better time. While Southern California is known for sunny days, it also tends to be unpredictable (even more so because of El Nino). Their indoor water park, as well as resort activities is a great staycation for the kids. Not to mention, the actual hotel rooms are so creatively decorated, that half the fun is sleeping in them.
A Day at the Museum
Orange County is not short on great indoor museums for kids. Pretend City, Discovery Cube and the Children’s Museum of La Habra are all great ways to burn off some energy during spring break in Orange County this year. The hands on exhibits are not only great, but it is such a fun way to do something educational.
Fun with Animals
And for those beautiful spring break days, there is so many zoos and farms in and around the Orange County areas that are perfect no matter the age of your child. From San Juan Capistrano’s Zoomars to OC Zoo, there is something for everyone. Zoomars is a favorite because there are so many great restaurants in walking distance as a special treat for mom and dad to enjoy too.
